In fact, Serena recently announced her pregnancy through social media and many were impressed by the fact she was actually pregnant when she won her 23rd Grand Slam title in the Open of Australia.

"Maybe it was wrong", McEnroe said. But McEnroe seems to have softened his stance. It was that reply that led to a response by Serena Williams herself who replied via Twitter, "Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based".

"I was not thinking beyond, 'Yeah sure, I can give you some feedback on your website, '" he said, though he couldn't help thinking, "This is an interesting, charming, handsome woman".

The two ended up exchanging numbers (Williams confessed she thought he was interested in her friend) and Ohanian watched Williams play later that day and even Instagrammed her in action. "Good day sir", she added.
